Amazon considering fee hike for Prime

Fee increase would cover rising cost

Amazon.com may raise its fee for Prime customers to cover rising costs.

The world's largest online retailer missed earnings expectations for the recent holiday season and also cautioned about a potential operating loss this quarter, as result of shipping and rising fuel costs.

The company expects operating results for the quarter to be between a $200 million loss to a $200 million profit, compared with a $181 million profit in the year ago quarter.

Prime customers, who get two-day shipping as well as access to a host of digital products, may see their annual $79 fee rise from $20 to $40.
